Transcript for Emotional support dog attacks passenger on flight
Back now with our big board and let's start with that disturbing incident on a delta flight. It happened on Sunday. A passenger was viciously attacked by his seat mate's emotional support dog. The man was rushed off the plane and treated for severe injuries to his face. David Kerley joins us now so this is incredibly scary. What can you tell us about the attack? Reporter: Imagine it, Amy, you're sitting in the window seat and somebody is in the middle seat with a 50-pound dog and starts growling at the victim. He asks is his dog going to bite me. The dog does attack him in the face and passengers heard it and saw what the victim looked like afterwards. You know, David -- His face was covered in blood. Around his eye, nose, his cheeks, shirt. When he walked out he had a cloth over his face and it was just completely bloody. Reporter: So the victim was taken to the hospital. The dog and the man were taken off the plane. They were accommodated on another flight by delta, this time, though, guys, that dog was in a crate. Yeah, and, David, this is such a heated debate about service animals on planes and there are Turkeys, pigs people have as service animals. Why such a polarizing issue right now? Yeah, we've seen a lot of animals on aircraft as you mentioned, rabbits, hedgehogs, dogs, as well. There is a difference here. Service dogs are traed but underneath the umbrella of service dogs are emotional support animals this. Could be somebody's pet, something they want to bring on to comfort them during the flight. Now, this is so worrying to flight attendants who say we don't want a zoo on our aircraft. They filed a letter with the government a year ago with disability groups and one of the airlines saying, hey, listen, change the rules and separate it. Service animals and then we want emotional care animals separate and tell us what they should be and what we can accept. The government hasn't done anything about that letter, guy. The story, though, I'm sure making a lot of people think twice about that. Absolutely. Amy, and now to tonight's big showdown. Lebron James and the Cleveland cavaliers hoping to turn things around in the NBA finals as they head back home to Ohio but they're down two games to the golden state warriors. The same spot they were in last year when they staged a big comeback and T.J. Holmes is joining us from quicken loans arena in Cleveland. T.J., you know, last year the Cavs ended up pulling off that dramatic comeback. What can they do to turn it around this year, man? Yeah, Strahan, down 2-0, the Cavs are after getting blown out the first two games at golden state so seems weird for me to argue they got the warriors exactly where they want them because this is exactly where they were last year and, of course, they pulled out off. Lebron James and coachty Lue argued nothing. They're not going to get away from that. They're playing against with that high octane, high pace, one of the most potent offenses we have seen in the NBA with the warriors who put up 132 points in game two, that's the pose points we've seen in a finals game since 1987 and, guys, we have been talking about cavs/warriors 3 like we're seeing this again. You got to remember the warriors are not the same team. They added Kevin Durant, Kevin Durant who has been one of the best two, three, four, five players in the league the past five plus years. It's essentially like Warren Buffett winning the Powerball lottery. The rich just got richer. So this is a different team they're trying to keep up with. Maybe that's why Lebron is pulling out a secret weapon during practice. I called it a superstition earlier. Go ahead and tell us. Secret weapon, I mean, come on like spike Lee told us years ago it must be the shoes. Lebron is with Nike and has his own brand of shoes and everything, he's wearing kobe Bryant shoes in practice. Does he want to rub off the mama juice, maybe he's telling us he wants to retire like kobe soon. David, thank you, as well. See game three tonight at 9:00 P.M. Eastern right here on ABC
